On 28 November 2017 a landslide occurred in the village of Gardenstown, North Aberdeenshire blocking the B9123 Harbour Road. This resulted in major disruption to the local community, as Harbour Road provides essential access for residents and local businesses, including an operational harbour vital to the local economy. Aberdeenshire Council, responsible for maintaining the road, reacted immediately to clear the debris and erected a temporary blockwork wall at the toe of the landslide.
This provided initial temporary protection to road users and residents; enabling the road to be partially reopened pending further inspection. Aberdeenshire Council proceeded quickly to appoint specialists with a brief to “mitigate the effects of the recent landslip to enable permanent, unrestricted use of the road by vehicles and non-motorised users.”
Atkins as Aberdeenshire Council’s technical advisors and BAM Ritchies as designer and contractor, worked together to develop a preliminary stabilisation solution which would allow the road to be reopened pending further investigation. The talk will discuss the landslide mechanisms, remedial solutions and the all-important community engagement undertaken by all parties.
Sophie was Atkins project manager for the works, providing technical advice throughout the duration of the project.
Stuart is BAM Ritchies geotechnical manager for the North and was their project manager for the works.
